Co-Founder of Good Catch, Chad Sarno, is on the Plantbased Business Hour. With people eating less beef, pork and chicken, they are switching to fish. However, our oceans are already depleted. With seafood consumption on the rise, that means an increase in commercial, factory fish farming.  Time to disrupt! Good Catch to the rescue! We discuss 1) finding the right texture, 2) the newest Good Catch products and food lab and 3) the importance in finding the right partners on both sides of the food aisle.
